Attorney Profile

Traumatic brain, spinal, and other incapacitating injury cases constitute the core of firm’s trial practice for 30+ years. The firm secured multi-million dollar verdicts and judgments on behalf of its clients in Illinois, Michigan, and Colorado state and federal courts. A disruptive international litigation precedent has been set by the firm-prosecuted European cause of action, i.e. Belarus courts’ recognition and enforcement of American state court $733,000 judgment.

Boris Parad’s engineering expertise helped the firm’s clients (to prove wrongdoers’ liability) to obtain significant recoveries in complex product defect, pedestrian knockdowns, motor vehicle crashes, nursing home neglect, fall-downs, watercraft collisions, breach of contract, construction site accidents and other civil litigation matters. He is a member of the U.S. Patent Bar since 1980. Boris and his staff’s fluency in Russian and Ukrainian result in mutually developed rapport with clients and facilitate the claims’ litigation / arbitration, mediations and settlements.

Parad Law Offices’ achievement record speaks for itself.
